Dwayne Johson has slammed the ‘snowflake’ generation for getting offended easily.
‘The Rock’ gave his opinion on the recent re-branding of the F1 show ‘Grid Girls’ over sexism fears.
Speaking to the Daily Star he said: “I don’t have to agree with what somebody thinks, who they vote for, what they voted for, what they think, but I will back their right to say or believe it.”
“That’s democracy. So many good people fought for freedom and equality – but this generation are looking for a reason to be offended.”

The retired wrestler continued to express his frustration of the younger generation: “If you are not agreeing with them then they are offended – and that is not what so many great men and women fought for.”
Despite his opinion on ‘snowfakes’, he did praise how people have become more accepting: “We thankfully now live in a world that has progressed over the last 30 or 40 years.”
“People can be who they want, be with who they want, and live how they want.”
“That can only be a good thing – but generation snowflake or, whatever you want to call them, are actually putting us backwards.”
